An equestrian vacation in Morocco, immersing in the life of a ranch located south of Agadir: by participating in the various tasks that punctuate the daily life of a passionate rider. The objectives of each can be diverse:
- Discover the region during the many trail rides with an experienced local guide who knows his region very well !
- Improve your riding level: the riders benefits from the personalized advice given by our guides during outdoor exercises (trotting in the mountains, controling the paces on the beach, etc.) or occasionally during arena lessons. Progress is noticeable in a few days.
It is of course possible and advisable to combine the two (improvement and trail rides).
This course is for riders of all levels. You ride on average 4 hours per day. The horses are mainly Arabian Barb with good tempers but energy. Horses are first and foremost trail riding horses !
This stay is possible all year round, from 1 rider. Non-riders are also welcome and can enjoy the ranch and the many other activities offered.
The management of the ranch is provided by a professional trained and qualified a few years ago at the Cap Rando equestrian guide training center, and having many years of experience in equestrian activities.
